Don't Waste Your Life
The questions are never far from your mind. In your car. At work. With your family.
“Am I on the right track? Can I stay faithful? Will this be wasted?”
You’re pretty sure you know the answers, but you’re getting tired of convincing yourself. The noise from competing answers is loud. And it’s everywhere. Your friends. Your newsfeed. Your work. Your own inner doubts.
Peter’s second epistle reminds us that we can be happy in Jesus, even when it’s hard. Even when the doubts creep back in. And we can take his word for it. He publicly denied the Christ three times. He knows what it feels like to be overcome by doubt and discouragement.
But he also knows what it’s like to find life and godliness in the grace of Jesus. You can, too.
By trusting the promises of Jesus.
By supplementing your faith in Jesus.
By hoping in the return of Jesus.
You can do this. By trusting, supplementing and hoping, you can live a life that counts, that’s beautiful and appealing, that’s effective, that’s fruitful, that is certain of its destination. You have everything you need and Jesus is coming back.
The dawn is coming. And the light is already shining in your heart.
